SPRINGFIELD, Missouri – A Springfield man has been charged with sexually assaulting a woman and attempting to hide from police.

The Springfield Police Department (SPD) arrested 48-year-old Shane Michael Nason on July 2 after responding to a domestic violence call in the 2200 block of N. Pickwick.

Nason was charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy and resisting arrest in connection with the incident.

According to a probable cause statement, officers arrived at a residence around 3 a.m. The victim told police she came out of the shower and found Nason sitting naked on a bed, where he asked her for sex. According to the probable cause statement, the victim told Nason “no” several times before he pushed her onto the bed.

The victim continued to tell Nason “no” before he let go of her, the statement said, but when she let go, he grabbed her by the left arm and pushed her against a wall.

According to court documents, a roommate told police she recorded part of the incident. Both the recording and the roommate corroborated the victim’s statement that she told Nason “no” and asked him to stop.

When officers attempted to arrest Nason, he allegedly refused to leave the house and attempted to hide in the attic of the house. A sniffer dog was sent to get Nason out.

Online court documents show that the victim had filed for a restraining order against Nason in the past. The documents also show that Nason had previously been convicted of multiple charges in Missouri (including domestic violence) as well as in Nevada and Colorado.
